Slash has some awesome songs on the new CD. "Not for Me" has great lyrics
about beating drug addiction and renewing ones life, but also has great 
southern rock inspired rhythm riffs and nice soloing as well. Please

Lyrics:
"The devil smiles and laughs at me,
Says you'll be back, just wait and see,
You know I've heard this all before,

And I say,
You can keep your high life in the hills,
Your cocaine lies and whiskey thrills,
I don't need you anymore,

This is not for me, no,
This is not for me, no,
This life is not for me, no,
This is not for me, no,
Oh oh oh"

Good job. But the chords in top of the Tabs are wrong. I know, what U mean (Slash plays a Half Step down), but the Tabs speak another language than the chords.
The chords are a half step up (not C# but D).

I just wrote what the true chord is relative to the tuning. If I was relating to standard tuning, the C# chord would be noted as D. If people want to relate the chord positions to standard tuning, those chords should be well known by most intermediate level guitarists anyway.

Yes , I know what U mean. But I thought, that beginners will be confused, perhaps.
